Mindless Monk

My Vision of Peace
I photographed this Monk in Beijing 1989 after the Tiananmen Square protests abruptly ended - to me he appeared headless, mindless and peace less. In 1989 each citizen of Beijing was individually engaged creating inner peace within, during a time of Martial Law. Self reconciliation required self recognition, while living in a community sharing a common unity of desiring peace. Self healing was being acted out in all ways and means, in every aspect of everyday life. From farmer's markets to the school rooms, each individual sought peace and held peace dearly, daily renewing the recognition that peace awards a miraculous sense of balance within the heart and minds of each sentient being.

Wonderful! It really does have a "painterly" quality...
